Cemen Tech has acquired Contech Testing & Consultancy Ltd. Located in Wolverhampton, England, Contech provides a full range of services related to concrete including mix design, testing, and production quality control. These best-in-class services and an accredited laboratory facility allow Cemen Tech to expand its support for companies in the UK operating volumentric concrete mixers and doing masonry block production. It also delivers on Cemen Tech’s corporate mission to become an innovative, end-to-end, concrete technology services company. The success of this effort was acknowledged with the 2020 Manufacturing Technology Award from the Technology Association of Iowa.
Connor Deering, CEO & President of Cemen Tech stated, “Though our roots are solidly planted in Iowa, Cemen Tech continues its commitment to the global construction industry. We need to keep expanding our concrete services to ensure our customers are able to produce the highest quality concrete in the world,” said Deering. “Acquiring a concrete testing company like Contech helps us do that with an unparalleled level of expertise.”
Contech will continue to operate under its current name as a division of Volumech, Cemen Tech’s existing UK operation. With Contech’s office in Wolverhampton, England, Cemen Tech now has three locations across the UK which deal in Cemen Tech concrete mixers, parts, refurbishments and service, its proprietary fleet management software ACCU-POUR, and now concrete mix design and testing.
“My whole team is excited to join the Cemen Tech family of companies,” said Phill Moore, founder of Contech Testing & Consultancy Ltd. “Cemen Tech is hands-down the leader in the volumetric concrete world. Our lab and field testing has repeatedly shown that Cemen Tech trucks are more accurate and efficient when it comes to quality concrete mixing. Now we get to work even closer with them – combining their equipment with our deep science and materials knowledge.”
